Truth & Memory, a documentary covering the Manic Street Preachers during their This Is My Truth Tell me Yours campaign and tour, will be released tomorrow.

The full documentary will streamed live on YouTube tomorrow at 7pm here, and you can view a trailer above.

It was directed by long-time band associate Kieran Evans, and offers a unique insight into the band, piecing together unseen footage that includes interviews, behind the scene clips and live sessions.

According to Evans, “In some respects, the footage in the film was never really meant to be seen outside the band's inner circle but by making Truth & Memory, I found myself able to take a peek inside that world and to offer a tiny window in to an extraordinary time in the life of the Manics”.

He continued: “Fans (and anyone else) are invited to sign into their YouTube account to join the live conversation as they watch the premiere. Much like band forums, or old school chat rooms, this will be a space for fans to engage and share stories, with exclusive content coming straight into their screens”.
